The irresistible Pembroke Palace Series continues when a baby arrives on the palace doorstep, and the man deemed responsible is the most degenerate and rakish young lord of the manor, Lord Vincent Sinclair.

When Lord Vincent learns of his unbreakable bond with the passionate lover he knew for only one night a year ago, he soon finds himself drawn in. But with his inheritance at stake, he must marry the woman his father has approved. Perhaps there is a way to be with Lady Cassandra again, and return to the magic of their unforgettable night together. Will Lady Cassandra be willing? Or will her unshakable pride keep her from Vincent's bed forever?

    " excellent book!"

    Another great listening. It was light hearted and romantic. Just what I needed from a stressful day. The narrator was excellent. I would definitely recommend this.

    I love Epic Fantasy....have become a Historical Romance fan because I am a sucker for a good Happily Ever After. Good characters are a must

    Story
    "The Rake and the Mistress...saving each other"

    I was so excited to start the second installment of the Pembroke Palace books.
    This book started out in a flurry of passion and the excitement just continued on!

    In the first book we found that Lord Vincent had good reason to be cynical and despise his brother. While I felt for him they way he was written made the reader not like him that much. So as the second book started I found it hard to immediately care for Lord Vincent. Cassandra on the other hand captured my heart right away.

    The characters are so well written and developed. I was swept away and never wanted it to end. Supporting characters returned from book one and were a great addition and important to the book...not just wall dressing.

    I could barely pause this book I wanted to see what was around each turn.

    Don't miss this series.....it is quickly becoming one of my favorites.

    "Enjoyable"

    Normally I don't like series. Will finish and pass judgment when finished. Reader was good and spoke clearly. Looking at rest of books.

    Story
    "It was barely okay, nothing memorable."

    This story was not as good as the previous story, In My Wildest Fantasies, at all. I really enjoyed that story. this one was just okay, kinda dull really. Nothing memorable happened. The hero and heroine were just sort of boring.

    The story line and plot were lacking terribly. Like another reviewer said a one night stand ends up in Baby Mama Drama, of the boring kind.

    There was a lot of dialogue so that was good. There was a couple of nicely written sex scenes and that was good too. Nothing erotic, just nicely written.

    As for the narration, Well.... to be honest I am not a big fan of Rosalyn Landor's narrations. Her reading voice is meh and she sounds to much like the men's characters voices, she is just sort of boring and annoying to listen too. Not really emotional and all the men always sound the same exactly. I don't dislike her like some narrators but if I had a choice it would not be her narrating that is for sure.

    I may still listen to the next book in this series, When a Stranger Loves Me, since I did enjoy the first book. I don't give up easily unless it is completely atrocious. This was not atrocious just a little boring.

    "Baby Mama Drama"

    One night stand that ends in an unplanned pregnancy..
    I know this story line has been done to death, but mix in an eccentric father and a well meaning but scheming family and you get a light enjoyable romance

    "Not a favorite"

    Ugh! This was difficult to read and difficult to review. It was just odd. This is the second book by this author that I've read and I haven't been impressed so far.
